Strains Sense: The Best Strains For Pain Relief

Say goodbye to chronic pain with these strains.

Are you a medical marijuana consumer? Maybe you’re a recreational consumer looking to combat pain.

If that’s the case, we couldn’t be happier to help you find the needed relief and bodily relaxation you’re looking for.

Whether you choose to smoke through a joint, bong, or pipe, these are the strains you need to purchase if you’re tired of over-the-counter pain relievers.


You don’t always need a strain rich in THC when looking to relieve pain and inflammation.

This strain offers roughly 9% CBD and 4% THC, but it’s an incredibly powerful tool for;

  • Relieving pain
  • Anxiety
  • Migraines
  • Muscle spasms.

The high is very relaxing, and because it contains the terpene Myrcene, it’s a great sleep-aid.
